Bristol school focuses on hands-on learning

BRISTOL — The snow-covered field behind the red schoolhouse off Hardscrabble Road in Bristol was filled with the sounds of industry and eager voices Monday morning. A young boy wielded an axe as another stood by critiquing his stance.

“Legs wide so you don’t chop off your feet,” the second boy said, and the first boy brought the axe down deliberately on a piece of wood, splitting it down the middle. A young girl took the splinters to the outdoor cob oven for kindling.

BRISTOL — Will Parini has the contract negotiation blues.

Parini, a new music teacher at Bristol and Starksboro elementary schools, stood up in front of a nearly full auditorium of Addison Northeast Supervisory Union teachers, board members and residents at Mount Abraham Union High School last Wednesday night and sang about the woes of the impasse reached on Dec. 16.

Parini was the last to speak in the discussion leading up to the negotiation committee’s vote to impose the ANeSU school boards’ final proposal as the terms for the 2010-2011 teachers’ contract.

BRISTOL — The Mount Abraham Union High School board is slashing an additional $174,000 from its 2011-2012 educational spending plan after receiving word this week that the Bristol school will post a projected $111,000 deficit this year.

A recently completed audit revealed a significant drop in Mount Abe’s projected revenues for next year that forced Co-principals Andy Kepes and Leon Wheeler to go back and make more spending cuts on top of the $266,767 that was eliminated earlier in the budget planning process.

BRISTOL — Bristol resident Victoria Grace has the best view in town.

For more than 20 years now, Grace has climbed up the series of staircases and rickety wooden ladders to the tip-top of Holley Hall twice a week to wind the clock that was installed by the E. Howard Company of Boston in 1884.

Grace inherited the job from her brother-in-law, Roland Benedict, years ago after her sister turned it down. Benedict’s father before him had wound the clock.

BRISTOL — Amidst filling out college applications, going on campus visits and completing routine homework assignments, Mount Abraham Union High School senior Rosie Nelson also finds time each week to Skype with the students and faculty of the New Life School in Ghana.

Nelson, 18, on her second trip to Ghana, volunteered at the school for 11 weeks this past summer, during which time she and her 22-year-old German roommate Christina Rohmann worked together to eliminate the practice of caning from the school’s bylaws after witnessing it firsthand.
